Have you ever turned to look at your best friends and wondered how they got there? I mean literally, you're not sure why you're friends — under what insane circumstance the universe brought you together and how your friendship has lasted as long as it has? You're all sitting on the couch together, all wearing each other's clothes, the same brand face mask, brushing knuckles in the chip bag while you argue over The Bachelorette contestants. You're all rooting for such different people, because you are all different people. You have such different tastes.
And yet somehow, there you are, on that very couch, intertwined and flopped on each other like a litter of puppies, and you love each other so much you understand that extra F in BFF is for real. You thank your lucky stars that whatever brought you all together, did. Because for the life of you, you can't imagine that you'd ever meet again. Some chance was at play.
But if you really think back, to that starting moment, to when you first became best friends, the signs would probably look pretty weird. If you've long since forgotten how these marvelous whack-a-doos have become your friends, I'll give you some clues. These are 11 weird signs someone should be your BFF:
